Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned From Statements In The Lord Of The Rings Movies That Weren’t In The Books

None of us should wander alone. *** Hearts of men are easily corrupted. *** Be at peace. *** Even the smallest person can change the course of the future. *** Nobody tosses a dwarf. *** Some things that should not have been forgotten were lost *** It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. *** No parent should have to bury their child. *** There is still hope. *** Keep breathing. That’s the key. Breathe. *** Certainty of death, small chance of success… What are we waiting for? *** I do not believe this darkness will endure. *** A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand. *** No more despair. *** Do not come between the *Nazgul and his prey. *** No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path. *** Nothing is certain. *** Some things are certain. *** Mist and shadow, cloud and shade. All shall fade. *** This day does not belong to one man but to all. Let us together rebuild this world that we may share in the days of peace. *** Do not give in to fear! Stand to your posts!

* I mean, right? Even though this didn’t work out in the movie, it’s still pretty good advice, generally speaking.
